    Doing math on the iPad not ideal: will jailbreak give me keyboard options?

    If you want to type an equation such as: 3x^3 + x^4 -2x+1 =y on the iPad you switch screens in-between almost every letter. most of what I write and chat about is equations. And while I have found ways to get LaTeX to work with the iPad, I still find the keyboard annoying. It's also hard...

    iPad beeps now and then... Don't know why.

    Every few hours my iPad makes a bleep noise, it will do this if I'm using, or if it is sleeping and just sitting on the dresser.. No dialogue box comes up with this sound... What could it be? I have about 30 aps.. Any idea what this could be?

    I've been scared of the jailbreak for some time, but after seeing this app: MyProfiles - Customize Text, Email alerts on iPhone And the possibility of using my ipad as a hotspot (so my husband on his wifi only iPad could surf too) has made me curious enough to do research. What I have...

    App ideas... everyone has one...

    Like many people I have a few ideas for apps. I don't think any of my ideas are going to be worth millions, mostly they are apps that *I* want since they would make my life easier. I have some computer programing experience, but I'm not an expert. Has anyone here successfully developed an...

    Like many here I placed a $20 pre-order for the beautiful much anticipated Grove iPad 2 case: Lovely Isn't It? I placed me pre-order the day before iPad 2 came out. I was THAT excited about this case. I wanted to pre-order right away so I'd have a good spot in line when they started...

    My iPad 2 Case Round Up: which cases have smart magnetic covers?

    Lots of iPad case manufactures are coming out with their cases for the iPad 2. What I find shocking is that, so far, very very few of the available cases support any of the smart case technology! I do expect this to change, but frankly I find the fact that great case designers like: BookBook...

    Knitting a cover for my ipad 2... I think I have the magnet figured out!

    I'm knitting a felt case for my iPad 2. It's just temporary until the bambo0 case I ordered comes (yes, I'm getting the case by GROVE , I'll post a review when it comes.) The back of my case will be cotton knit and the front will be felted wool, trimmed to be shed-free. I think I have the...

    Exposed headhone jack and charger.

    So far the only design element that gives me pause is the fact that when you plug in headphones or a charger to the iPad 2 a large portion of the metal is exposed due to the slim curve of the iPad 2 case. This isn't a big bother, but I do wish the charging plug had plastic so that it was a snug...

    I love my new IPad... but how to switch from Verizon to At&T?

    I bought my iPad 2 at Target today right in my own neighborhood here in the South Bronx.

I love...
